There is much to see: From Gothic St. Stephen’s Cathedral to the Imperial Palace to the Art Nouveau splendour of the Secession, from the magnificent baroque palace Schönbrunn to the Museum of Fine Arts to modern architecture at the MuseumsQuartier.

Historic Center of Vienna: Part of UNESCO'S World Cultural Heritage
The historic center of Vienna has been added to UNESCO's World Cultural Heritage list. Thus, St. Stephen's Cathedral, the Imperial Palace and many other historic buildings are now recognized as being among the 700 outstanding cultural and natural monuments of mankind.
Imperial Palace - Hofburg
The Imperial Palace was the residence of the Habsburg emperors until 1918. Originally a medieval castle, of which only the chapel has survived to this day, the residence of the court was expanded and made ever more lavish as the power of the Habsburgs grew and the territory of their dominions increased.
Imperial Silver Collection
The table decorations, centerpieces, trays, serving bowls, serving pieces, place settings, silverware and other utensils on display here are proof of the great extent to which a meal at the imperial court was an affair of state, an occasion of splendor and pomp.
Secular and Ecclesiastical Treasuries
In this, the most important treasury in the world, the most magnificent individual treasures are the imperial crown of the Holy Roman Empire (crafted around 962), the crown of the Austrian Empire (1602, before 1804 merely the family crown of the Habsburgs), the Burgundian treasure (15th century) and the treasure of the Order of the Golden Fleece.
Giant Ferris Wheel
In 1896-97, the English engineering firm of Walter Basset built the Giant Ferris Wheel, which has become one of the most recognizable symbols of Vienna (other ferris wheels they had built in Chicago, London, Blackpool and Paris have long since been scrapped).
St. Stephen's Cathedral
In the centre of the city rises the 137-meter-high Steffl, the south tower of Gothic St. Stephen's Cathedral. Each stone of this Vienna landmark oozes history.
